That definitely seems fishy. I know they were doing something like that to open up Craigslist accounts a while back wouldn't surprise me if they're doing it again.

I would PM the OfferUp Twitter if you get anything that appears to be a scam — they'll be able to tell you if it is legit.

I'm unable to see what you posted, but I did get a message from the app directly about a month ago asking for me to sign in again (probably a user check to see if the account is being used) they will end any session if that were the case.
